In Livingston, Texas, a body cam video captured in the Polk County Jail shows Don Steven McDougal, an accused child-killer, standing naked before a magistrate judge.

Despite being advised by the judge of his Capital Murder charge and ordered to be held without bond, McDougal refused to put on clothes for the hearing.

McDougal is facing allegations in the death of 11-year-old Audrii Cunningham.

Her body was discovered in the Trinity River after McDougal reportedly caused her death by inflicting blunt force trauma to her head and securing her to a rock.

Authorities claim that the rope used matches one found in McDougal’s 2003 Chevrolet Suburban just two days prior to Audrii’s disappearance on February 15th.

KTRK ABC13 in Houston was the first to release the body camera footage capturing a jailer entering McDougal’s cell to escort him to an arraignment hearing with a local justice of the peace. In the video, McDougal is depicted naked in his cell and declines to put on any clothing.

According to KTRK’s report, the interaction between the jailer and McDougal was documented in the footage.

“Come on. JP wants to talk to you,” a deputy says. “Where’s your clothes? Hold on!”

“I ain’t got no clothes,” McDougal says on the video.

“Well, come on out here. Well, no, no, man. Come on, man, don’t disrespect me like that. Well, wrap up in that. Wrap up in the blanket. Come on. Come on,” the video plays out.

As the video proceeds, McDougal talks with the female justice of the peace:

“You have the right to remain silent, not make no statement at all. Know that anything you make can and will be used against you at trial and court. You have a right to an attorney present to advise you prior to or during questioning,” the justice of the peace says. “You have the right to terminate any interview at any time. You have the right to examine the charges, accused of a felony. Do you understand your rights, Mr. McDougal?”

“Yep,” he answers.

“Do you want a court-appointed attorney or hire your own?” the justice asks.

“Nope,” McDougal answers.

“Which one?” the justice asks.

“I’ll get an attorney,” McDougal answers.

“You’re going to hire your own? Alright, all I need you to do is sign right here for me. Your charge is capital murder. That’s no bond,” the justice says.

Audrii Cunningham disappeared on February 15 after being taken from her home by McDougal to go to the school bus stop.

Polk County Sheriff Byron Lyons stated to Breitbart Texas that McDougal confessed to leaving with her, and he believed McDougal was likely the final person to have seen her alive.

  • America is not only facing murder and rape by illegals, our children are being murdered by American’s.!
    Texas, still has the death penalty and unlike Commifornia our justice system doesn’t allow them to live out our their lives in prison.
    There is nolonger any dignity or respect for human lives in America anymore, thanks to the Communist Democrats and Rinos who are plaguing total destruction of Americans.!!
    That little girls life ended way too soon at the hands of a useless, subhuman POS, who murders young children who can’t defend themselves.
    Send that POS to the head od the line.!

  • Get over it. It’s him, not you. Conduct the hearing. Clothes? I wear ’em. Not just societal convention, I do things from which I want their protection. Like a napkin on one’s lap or a jacket in winter. He doesn’t want clothes? That’s his problem. Also, I like the convenience of having pockets. Is this an insanity defense schtick?

    • Spray his crotch with that pebble-like truck-bed liner stuff, no showing his goodies, and he’ll have years to try & peel it off his balls.

  • By apperaring nude, this killer is going for a not guilty by insanity and hoping for a life sentence. In reality though he deserves a death penalty for his horrible crime.

  • This is just a ploy to get his case reduced to INSANITY. I mean he will try to claim he was not sane when he killed as proven by his actions during his arraignment. He should be barred from getting any decision other than guilty with a death sentence if evidence proves he is guilty.

    • It’s not that easy to prove insanity. I know this is fictional but remember corporal clinger on the tv show MASH.
      He tried his darndest to convince everyone he’s nutty and peanut m&m but no one bought it.
      It was that obvious he wasn’t going anywhere with his actions but it didn’t stop him from trying. Psychiatrist are not easily manipulated especially by child murders playing the I’m insane game treat me with kid gloves. Even if he convinces everyone he may not like where he goes physc wards in prison settings aren’t as easy time as you would think. The dr may decide on what medications he needs and he would be stumbling around like zombie for a years behold he realizes he better wise up if he ever wants to be rid of being a Zombie or a bed ridden psychopath who messes his bed and has to lay in his own filth until someone changes his sheets and scrubs his dirty body non to gentle because they’re tired of doing that since he’s bragged about beating the system before he was given his new meds.

  • What are The Chances Somebody Is Planning?-To Plead Insanity?-Scum Like This Don’t Need a Trial!-Caught Red Handed and 99% Sure With The Tech And Forensics-Should Be Executed The Day After And $$ Is Saved and Misery Isn’t Long Drawn Out Nonsense Delivered Daily By The Fabricated Bullshit Propaganda Machine!-Condolences To The Many Family and Friends Of This Poor Child!-The Real Crime/Aftermath Never Mentioned!!

  • why does a justice system piss away millions of dollars and years of time on a piece of shit like this. execute the bastard now.

    • I believe murderers should face execution by the same method by which they earned it.

      Further, if a convicted killer’s family is receiving ANY govt assistance, it should be canceled for the entire family for all time.

  • It’s stupid to commit a capital crime in a state that has demonstrated a ready willingness to administer the Big Sleep.

    Visit Texas’ criminal justice site… there are pages and pages of madmen ( and women ) who got what they deserved.

  • “You have the right to remain silent, not make no statement at all. Know that anything you make can and will be used against you at trial and court. You have a right to an attorney present to advise you prior to or during questioning,” the justice of the peace says. “You have the right to terminate any interview at any time. You have the right to examine the charges, accused of a felony. Do you understand your rights, Mr. McDougal?”

    If this is an exact transcript, I think Texas needs to put their JOPs through remedial English classes.

  • How is that this girl’s parents trusted a man with such a long criminal record to take their child to a bus stop?
    Why aren’t they being prosecuted?
    If this child had walked to the bus stop by herself, she would have had a much better chance of surviving.
